Fans of Broken Lizard can now mark their calendars as the comedy troupe’s next big screen adventure, Super Troopers 2, is set to be released April 20, 2018. The guys haven’t been seen together in a film since 2009’s The Slammin’ Salmon, in which the usual crew played waiters and chefs.  The Original Super Troopers was released 15 years ago and became a cult classic with the ridiculous antics of some not so law-abiding law enforcement officers.

A minute-long teaser for Super Troopers 2 was released today, and from the looks of it, fans are in store for more of what made the first movie great. We see what looks to be some more shenanigans from the guys, as Rabbit, the rookie from the first film who was endlessly hazed, is tied down to a table and the rest of the guys seem to be dead set on helping him out with some manscaping. It isn’t long before Captain O’Hagan comes in to ruin the boys’ fun as usual. The teaser then moves to a familiar setting, with Rabbit and Mac on a traffic stop and it looks like they are planning to once again mess with the citizen by playing some version of their classic ‘meow’ game, which was one of the funnier bits of the first film..

All things considered the teaser leaves us with the feeling that this film will make up for the long wait and pay homage to the original while also exploring other means of hilarity. I have always been a fan of the original Super Troopers and most of the other Broken Lizard films (Club Dread, not so much). I try to save my theater trips for franchises and superhero movies, but I may have to make an exception for this one.  Original cast members returning for the long awaited sequel include, Jay Chandrasekhar (who is also directing the film) as Sgt. Ramathorn, Kevin Heffernan as Farva, Eric Stolhanske as ‘Rabbit”, Steve Lemme as Mac, Marisa Coughlan as Ursula, and Brian Cox as Captain O’Hagan.

Super Troopers 2 opens April 20, 2017.
